Winnie-the-Pooh’s Ashdown Forest Park Fees Approved

THE final part of plans to charge for parking in Ashdown Forest has been approved by a senior district council.

Earlier this year, East Sussex County Council signed proposals from the Ashdown Forest Board of Conservators to charge for parking within the popular landmark.

The conservators say these fees, which are expected to take effect next month, are intended to help overcome funding pressures the organization is facing.

While the earlier decision meant the proposals could go ahead, the woodland car parks include land in Millbrook Hill owned by East Sussex County Council.

On Monday (July 18), Cllr Claire Dowling, the lead member of the Council for Transport and Environment, agreed that this land could be included in the Conservator’s park pricing area.

As part of these plans, the parking garage is expected to be upgraded with new finishes and line paint. At the same time, another car park, known locally as the Vachery car park, will be closed.

Ashdown Forest is where author AA Milne lived and created Winnie-the-Pooh and is popular with fans visiting the forest, including the Pooh Sticks Bridge. The Hundred Acre Wood was inspired by the forest. Winnie-the-Pooh’s Ashdown Forest Park Fees Approved
